Timelapse: “Celestial Lights – viewed from Earth”
Photo and video artist Ole C. Salomonsen assembled over 150,000 digital photos taken over the course of eight months to create this stunning time-lapse video of aurora-filled Arctic skies. The footage was shot on location in parts of Norway, Finland and Sweden from September 2011 to April 2012, and shows the glorious effects that the Sun’s increasing activity has had on our planet’s upper atmosphere.
If you have access to proper audio hardware, please connect and turn up the volume to enjoy the fantastic music composed by Norwegian composer Kai-Anders Ryan.
